Bike UK Takes Delivery of Velopost Post Box


Bristol based cycling specialist Bike UK has teamed up with fossil fuel free delivery service Velopost to offer customers the opportunity to buy stamps and post letters when they shop.

Bike UK in Clifton, the city’s largest bicycle and accessories retailer, is the first retailer to install a Velopost post box after a successful pilot in Destination Bristol.

Bike UK Shop Manager Damola Johnson says ‘We want to contribute to the community and green credentials of our city as well as growing a thriving business, and this Velopost link is perfect.  I dare say we’ll be able to tempt a few people with Bristol’s widest bike and accessories range whilst they’re dropping off their post’

Velopost Divisional Manager Phil Smisson  says ‘There has been huge enthusiasm from Bristol retailers to help us with a roll out programme and we expect this to be the first of many partnerships which allows us to provide residents of Bristol with the same cost effective and carbon neutral letter delivery mechanism that is enjoyed by Bristol and Bath businesses.’
